25 Randoms

Once you've been tagged, you are supposed to write a note with 25 random things, facts, habits, or goals about you. At the end, choose 25 people to be tagged.

I did this tag on Facebook and I thought maybe I'd copy it on here. Some of you may not know the extent to which I am a dork, but you’re about to find out! Here you are: 25 randoms, facts, and hobbies:

1. I’m a chapstick addict. I go crazy if for some reason there isn’t chapstick in my pocket or purse at all times. Blistex Deep Renewal is my FAVORITE! I also like the Chapstick mint kind... and it reminds me of Jillian!

2. Sometimes I color in coloring books even when I’m not watching any kids. It’s very relaxing! Just listening to my MP3 player, coloring… it takes me back to my childhood and is really soothing. Try it!

3. I sleep in until noon or later everyday and sometimes don’t go to sleep until my mom is awake and getting ready for work.

4. More than half of my favorite bands had their glory days before my time (Beatles, AC/DC, Def Leppard, and Metallica to name a few)

5. I really love chef/cooking shows, particularly Iron Chef America and Take Home Chef. I always say I’ll take some of their simple gourmet recipes and apply them, but I never have.

6. I can honestly say that I like all vegetables. (Well at least all of the ones that I’ve tried) In fact, spinach and broccoli are a couple of my favorites.

7. I ditched more than your average teen in high school but still pulled off a 3.66 cumulative GPA somehow.

8. I sang a mini solo at my graduation… scariest moment of my life, I think.

9. I’ve never had to get stitches but had 3 “broken” bones before I was 3. They call it a green break or something because the bones aren’t fully developed.

10. I’m pretty crafty and know the basics of a lot of areas (sewing, crocheting, knitting, cross-stitching, etc) but the only area that has caught my interest long enough to finish a project is scrapbooking (aside from the numerous pairs of pants I sewed for girl’s camp one year.)

11. I love camping and my family goes about once a year to our Cabin in Fairview UT.

12. I love learning about the history of my ancestors and one of my favorite memories is spending a week with my grandpa, writing his memories down.

13. The best compliment I’ve ever gotten was when I had just gotten out of the shower, had my hair in a towel and no makeup on and I didn’t know that my late grandma’s sister was visiting, so I sauntered through the living room, extremely embarrassed, only to hear her say as I left “She looks just like DeOn!” (DeOn’s my grandma) I guess makeup and hair product don’t matter so much if I can get that kind of compliment without it.

14. I love board games, Karaoke, and Sims and have an embarrassing collection of all of these hobbies.

15. I just bought a laptop that can sign me into websites using my fingerprint

16. I’m writing a novel

17. I’m really sarcastic and have a weird sense of humor so people who don’t know me very well just think I’m mean.

18. Sometimes I AM mean.

19. I’m definitely the black sheep of my fam, despite what the rest of them say. If they deny it, deep down they know it’s true. Lol.

20. I like to ramble on about basically nothing sometimes, as you know since you're reading my blog right now.

21. I LOVE kids but don’t necessarily know if I want them.

22. I draw very poorly

23. I dislike the color purple more than most girls and even some guys.

24. I only have one semester left of college and even though I thought I’d be sad (I used to LOVE College), I’m totally ready for graduation.

25. I love musicals (what would the world be like if we could just bust into song, wherever we were? Awesome… that’s what it would be!)

As always, I tag you all, though I doubt there are 25 people that read my blog :)

I am the Walrus (koo koo kachoo)

1. Put Your iTunes on Shuffle.
2. For each question, press the next button to get your answer.
3. You must write down the name of the song no matter how silly it sounds!
4. Put any comments in brackets after the song name.
So there's not a LOT of variety on my mp3 player right now (and my 30 gig is out of commision for the time being) so there are some repeats of cds, but I think it worked well. Ü Also, for some reason Blogger is chunking everything together, despite the fact that I spaced it out a bit when I composed it, so I'm coloring the actual question red, so there isn't any confusion. Ü Anyways, here goes...

If someone says "Is this ok?" you say: The Story of Nothing- Aquabats [Yeah, I guess if its NOT ok, I’d say nothing? See if they figure it out? Ha ha ha.]
How would you describe yourself? One Short Day- Wicked soundtrack [It's true... I am pretty short Ü]
What do you like in a guy/girl? In Love with a Girl- Gavin Degraw [Um… confusion… I don’t like girls. OH… maybe I like guys who are in love with THIS girl. ;)]
How do you feel today? This is such a pity- Weezer [I couldn’t have said it better myself! Ha ha ha.]
What is your life’s purpose? Over-rated- Gavin Degraw [Ha. Having a purpose in life is SO over-rated! Lol.]
What is your motto? I thank you God [Seriously! I’m so blessed!]
What do your friends think of you? Grace Kelly- Mika [I’m a classy gal?]
What do you think of your parents? It Ain’t Me Babe- New Found Glory [Maybe I’m not what they expected… but I sure do love ‘em!]
What do you think about very often? Follow Through- Gavin Degraw [Yeah, the follow through of goals is something I ponder on frequently…. Maybe that’s the problem. Too much thinking, not enough action! Lol.]
What is 2 + 2? Be Yourself- Audioslave […and then math will just make sense Ü]
What do you think of your best friend? Life in Technicolor- Coldplay [Maybe I don’t need to comment on ALL of these Ü]
What do you think of the person you like? Girl You Know- Scarface [Wow. I feel the need to reiterate: I’m not into girls. Really... I'm not. Ha ha. I LIKE GUYS... okay, I'm glad we're clear on that Ü]
What is your life story? Bella’s Lullaby- Twilight soundtrack [I WISH my life story was Bella’s Lullaby! Ha ha ha.]
What do you want to be when you grow up? Long time gone- Dixie chicks [It’s true, I do think about getting away sometimes Ü]
What do you think of when you see the person you like? Wall to Wall- Chris Brown [Yeah, I got nothing on this one... but I AM relieved that the title doesn't have the word 'girl' in it. Ü]
What will you dance to at your wedding? A Message- Coldplay [Not too far off!]
What will they play at your funeral? A Sentimental Man- Wicked soundtrack [Okay, okay... I get it. I think my mp3 player’s just confused about my gender!!! That’s what it is… I probably should’ve gotten a hot pink one or should put some Britney Spears on it or something so there's no confusion.]
What is your hobby/interest? Welcome to the Black Parade [Sure, I like parades as much as the next guy Ü]
What is your biggest fear? Flightless Bird- Twilight soundtrack [This could either be really deep (Fear that I won’t make anything of myself- A flightless bird) or could be in reference to my fear of heights… I don’t know which Ü]
What is your biggest secret? Shiver- Maroon 5 [hmmm…]
What do you think of your friends? Goodbye my Lover- James Blunt [See ya later, friends. It’s been real.]
What will you post this as? I am the Walrus- Beatles [Is that some kind of fat joke? Ha ha ha ha.]
Well... that was fun. Ü Tune in next time for the next installment of useless knowledge about Rachel's life! Over and out.
